I Make Milk--What's Your Superpower?


I wish I could take credit for that quote but I actually saw it on a t-shirt.
Wow, ask and ye shall receive! So many people have responded with all different kinds of advice--thank you all so much! Today I had an appointment at the Center for Breastfeeding in Sandwich (who knew they even existed?). Anticipating the torture I was about to endure I was in tears before I even sat down. My consultant, Anna (heretofore referred to as 'Angel Anna'), asked me a few questions and then suggested we take a look at how Ellen nursed. With great trepidation I got started. Well, Angel Anna saw right off the bat about nine things I was doing wrong, had me make a few adjustments and in a minute I was nursing Ellen like nothing ever happened. Unbelievable! Of course, that's only on one side. The other side has been pretty traumatized and I might have to get my OB's help there, but that's fine. I now actually have hope that it will all get worked out. I can actually feed my baby--yipee!

Way to go Katie, Ellen and Angel Anna!

I learn something every day from this blog. For example, I did not know you could do anything "wrong" when breast feeding. Is that like forgetting your passport at home when you adopt overseas?

A hearty, protein-filled congratulations to all of you.

Love, Leslie
